By Experience Culture

Traveling all over Greece though the magical cuisine in 8 days

OVERVIEW
One of the undeniable cultural qualities of any given place is its cuisine. Greek cuisine is a kaleidoscope of delicacies, recipes and traditions, with as many faces as the areas of the truly diverse landscape of the country.

Kos Island is home to a rich gastronomic tradition following Greek and Mediterranean routes. Despite its statues as a cosmopolitan destination, Kos Island has managed to preserve a distinct and true to its beginnings gastronomic identity. Many of the local treats are prepared in connection with religious celebrations, while the islands fertile soil and promising climate have given birth to many peculiar products and unique varieties of wine.
A trademark of the island the posa cheese or wine-cheese is prepared by allowing local goat cheese to mature submerged in red wine, granting it its famous capricious flavor.
Pligouri is notable local specialty made of lightly ground wheat, usually found accompanying pork.
The traditional beverage Kanelada is made of cinnamon and the Alefaskia a tea like herb found on the island.
Also noted for their taste are the local wines and the thyme honey.
All these treats are only a sample of what one may expect of the island’s cuisine.

Hippocrates Garden

By Experience Culture

Культурный центр «Античный дом – сад Гиппократа» находится в Мастихари, остров Кос.

Это точная копия древнегреческого сооружение 5 века до нашей эры.

Центр специализируется на возрождение древнегреческого образа жизни в то время, когда жил великий греческий врач. Культурный комплекс состоит из:

— точной копии древнегреческого сооружения 5 века до нашей эры;

— галереи философа;

— каменного театра – театра хореографической сатиры.

В этих зданиях мы осветим философские и духовные темы и осуществим знакомство с медициной Древней Греции и с ее повседневной жизнью.

  1. «Oikos» — античный греческий дом. Это точная копия постройки того периода с гостиной, ванной комнатой, кухней, мужской, женской комнатами, а также комнатой, где женщины занимались ткачеством. Это двухэтажный каменный дом, сделанный из камней, которые были найдены здесь же в этой местности. Старые плитки расположены на деревянной крыше. Мебель ручной работы является точной копией античной мебели.
  2. Галерея философа. Построена по стандартам той эпохи с мозаикой ручной работы, которая выбита на полу и на стенах. В галерее находятся произведения искусства, а также библиотека, где гости могут почитать произведения древнегреческих философов и в то же время восхититься экспонатами современного греческого искусства. Также есть выставка различных предметов, сохраненных после волны модернизации за последние 50 лет в Греции.

Книги с 1920 года и бытовые предметы 19 и 20 веков стали наследием, доставшимся нам от наших предков.

  1. Театр хореографической сатиры – каменный театр, расчитанный на 80 мест, где проводились представления на тему Древней Греции и культурных событий, имеющих отношение к традициям островов Додеканеса и острова Кос, в частности.

Все зоны открыты для посетителей, поэтому наши гости могут принимать участие в событиях культурного центра. Кроме того, посещая семинары (лепки из глины, риторики, кулинарии и другие), гости могут прогуляться по саду, где находится большое количество различных трав, диких деревьев кедра, виноградников, фруктовых деревьев, которые сосуществуют в гармонии. Можно занять себя ботаников, вопросами выращивания винограда и ведения сельского хозяйства или просто отдохнуть в почти девственных окрестностях.

Земля вокруг культурного центра является убежищем для диких животных.

Центр посвящен светилам древнегреческой философии. Наша цель, открыть, через их преподавания, современные пути осмысления жизни и необходимости сохранения природы. Семинары, которые проводятся на ежедневной основе, предназначены именно для этого. Также проводятся греческие вечера, где посетители смогут насладиться национальной греческой музыкой, танцами, едой и вином.

Античный дом – сад Гиппократа

Культурный и духовный центр посвящен деятельности древнегреческого врача и отца медицины Гиппократу с острова Кос
